She has placed me in a Nursing Home and I have no say in anything. She does not respect my rights, she just treats me as if I don't exist! Her attorney appointed an attorney ad-lit-um for me who I have not heard from for over a year!
Conversion is just a fancy word for steal. If you suspect that your guardian-ad-litem has stolen your property, simply request an accounting. The guardian's failure to account for ANY part of your property would constitute a breach of his/her fiduciary duty to you and subject the guardian to...View More

Proving that he was overdosed involuntarily will be difficult. Potential criminal charges might be pressed against the assailants however, again. Depending on what the autopsy report says a wrongful death claim could be charged against the driver's car insurance.
I know someone who has a dog and she let her roommates shoot him just because they found him annoying. They shot him in the face with a shot gun. He has never bit anyone or hurt a fly. I want justice for this dog what can I do.
Report these people to the local police ASAP. YOU cannot do anything but report it to the police. The POLICE can and should charge the shooter AND the owner with Animal Cruelty under § 35-46-3-12.

No, you can only sue the killer. However, chances are neither she nor her son have money, so you'd spend a lot of time for no result. Not to mention spending money. Do what you are doing to change the custody agreement.
